Williamsville Central School District Universal Pre-Kindergarten Program
Preparing for Kindergarten is so much fun!
Children who turn 4 by December 1st will enjoy a comprehensive pre-kindergarten program based on the Williamsville School District's UPK program that closely follows the NYS Common Core Curriculum. Teachers embrace the fact that each child is unique and through differentiated instruction, they are able to teach to the individual strengths and needs of your child. Launchpad for Learning's goal is to foster a life-long love of learning through interactive and exciting activities focused on math, science, sensory tables, writing, literacy, phonics, pre-reading, music and movement, outside play, circle time, social studies, snack, social interaction and more!
